Windows Phone 8 Theme Colors (HEX & RGB)

If you read my last blog post, you know the Windows Phone 8 SDK is out! Yay! Along with the new SDK, there are some new theme colors. Below you’ll find a summary of the new colors in HEX and RGB values. Usually I put the HEX & RGB values in a table, but I’m just going to list them out. No worries though, they’re still copy/paste-able 😀 (Need Windows 8 colors? Get the HEX codes here.)

Windows Phone 8 app resources will be coming soon to Generation App! In the meantime, why don’t you get started on a Windows 8 companion app?
